Replaces Sean Mannion as backup to Jared Goff
Los Angeles has a new backup quarterback, as the club agreed to terms with former Jaguar Blake Bortles on a one-year contract. Bortles has played in 75 games (starting 73), completing 59.3 percent of his passes for 17,646 yards with 103 touchdowns and an 80.6 career passer rating. (TheRams.com)
Nerdy Football Analysis: The Rams had Sean Mannion backing up Jared Goff last season so this gives them a more experienced backup in case Goff gets nicked up during the season. Bortles best fantasy season came back in 2015 when he finished as the QB3 with 4,428 yards and 35 passing TDs. He’ll go undrafted in most redraft leagues in 2019.
